jacks: a gothic gospel

Part fictional memoir, part fairy-tale, jacks is the story of Hermeline, a young girl whose fabulated world is an interlacing of myths, rhymes, incantations and memories, a thousand and one tales beneath whose surface lies the violence of childhood, forever lost in the brilliance of fiction.Like a disturbing and recurring dream, jacks will plunge you into the terror of language and myth.

jacks: a gothic gospel is the first novel by Montreal writer Anne Stone. It is a book sure to make a profound impression — a powerful and moving novel unlike any other in Canadian literature, and one that you are not likely to forget.

Critical Comment

“...an odd and energetic experiment.... A brave, new book from a brave, new writer....”

— Books in Canada

“Experimental works [like] ... jacks challenge the reader to think about narrative as more than just story-telling.”

— Montreal Review of Books
